LOS ANGELESNov. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- IO Connect Services, an AWS Advanced Tier Partner, has announced a majority growth equity investment from East Los Capital to expand its service offerings and engineering staff in anticipation of the next wave of growth from the continued adoption of cloud computing and the increasingly complex needs of its clients.

Founded in 2016 by Dr. Javier Navarro-Machuca, PhD, IO Connect has established a strong presence in the SMB and digitally native business (DNB) verticals while offering advanced migrations, cybersecurity and managed services combined with a full suite of digital transformation offerings.

"The evolution of cloud service providers has reached a point at which partners need to deliver on increasingly complex legacy lift and shift migrations while also powering their client's IT infrastructure with the newest cloud-enabled intelligent technologies. Partners need to ensure that their clients have what they need to be the best in their verticals," said Dr. Navarro-Machuca.

IO Connect is fully committed to the AWS ecosystem with its deep array of offerings and dominant market position among the hyperscalers which enables the rapid delivery of premium high value solutions to clients.

Dr. Navarro-Machuca added, "We are proud to be partnering with AWS as their market leading position in cloud services greatly enhances our abilities to connect with customers and deliver on our promise to power the future of cloud."

"IO Connect has been key to our success along our journey," said Scott Yarman, Director of Enterprise Architecture at Medical Mutual of Ohio. "From our original standup of the MuleSoft platform to their continued support to help us meet project demand, IO Connect has provided us with excellent architecture and development resources through all phases."

"IO Connect delivers great value add from both a strategic perspective and hands on technical expertise. Their deep expertise in cloud engineering and data analytics fortifies a company's cloud infrastructure and processing pipelines," added retail industry CIO veteran and consultant William Nixon.

East Los Capital Partner and IO Connect Board Member, Anthony Valencia, commented, "After the recent successful exit of our last AWS cloud services investment, the bar was set very high, but IO Connect impressed on every metric from the technical expertise of Dr. Navarro to their single-minded focus on solving complex problems for their clients."
